Title: Reduce size of updates for openSUSE Factory
openSUSE-11.0: Rejected by Stephan Kulow <coolo(a)novell.com>
reject date: 2008-06-06 09:06:29
reject reason: not really attached to a specific openSUSE version
openSUSE-11.1: Rejected by Adrian Schröter <adrian(a)novell.com>
reject date: 2008-11-06 16:10:03
reject reason: This is a build service feature, but no distribution
Requested by: Michael Loeffler <michl(a)novell.com>
+ Partner organization: openSUSE.org
Each update currently is around 2GB which is already much for broadband
bandwith. For user with less bandwith it's by and large impossible to
use Factory. Goal is to reduce size of updates and stay with frequent
updates to offer latest software to the user. As we want more people
using Factory it's usage needs to be conveniant.

According to discussions with Rudi and mls, the delta setup on dist
need to be changed to also contain the rpm header and the deltas need
to be indexed in a way that zypp will see them.
So we can still use drpmsync for internal distribution and put the
deltas only in instsource for mirrors.

This will happen automatically once the remaining parts of libzypp
deltarpm handling are finished. We only need to agree on the format. I
will propose something today.

ZYpp side is done.
The only thing that needs to be done is to generate the deltarpm
metadata in factory. I will post link to documentation and examples
